Kevin, 23 Mar 2009the speakers are under the Qwerty keyboard on the left and right sidesthe good thing about most Nseries are the speakers. They are VERY LOUD and VERY CLEAR. Iphone speakers cannot compete with my N95 8GB-it blows them out of the room.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2009where is it's speaker located? and why it's thicknes variable?the speakers are under the Qwerty keyboard on the left and right sides
Giang Mai, 22 Mar 2009Looks like another crappy phone. If the N96 is only 16GB and lags going from menu to menu, jus... moredon't wory about speed..!
bcoz, nokia n97 have a big cpu maybe 600 mhz,
and 256 mb of RAM.
Looks like another crappy phone. If the N96 is only 16GB and lags going from menu to menu, just imagine a phone with 32GB built-in!
GP, 22 Mar 2009Personally touched and used the phone, it is a wonderful piece. Waiting for the final release.... moreApple does not invent Multitouch! I am not a lawyer, so i cannt comment on this patent things, but i think we still can have multitouch like software on N97.
here are some information i got from other site and some comments.
Stantum precision multitouch on resistive is way better than that on iphone, YOUTUBE "STANTUM" YOULL KNOW WHAT I MEAN! THEY SAID IT WORK ON SYMBIAN, WINMO AND ANDROID, only problem is it does need an extra small chip:( nokia should buy this company after symbian acquisition.
N97 has no this extra chip in it, but that does not stop us to have zoom rotate(plugin preferred) IN WEB/photo BROWSER with just one Finger
last word, resistive can be more powerful, useful and modern than that on iphone if it is well done (stantum is a good example)
Nokia n97 should have at least One-Finger Multitouch or multitouch alternative in it!!!!! this way, n97 is complete and 100% perfect
Personally touched and used the phone, it is a wonderful piece. Waiting for the final release. only lacking feature is the multi-toufh, which is patented by Apple.
one finger multittouch for 5800/n97 very simple to implement zoom/rotate control by doubletapping you set a control point and when you drag the control takes efect need just one hand to controll (multitouch needs two hands to control - you have to hold the device with other hand
develope it now and upload it to Ovi store, make it free or donationware:) no more iphone is needed!
One finger zoom multitouch plugin for web and photo browser will be most welcomed
Double tapping + draging(zoom) to the size you want!
But it needs to disable the default double tap zoom function in web browser!
Create it then upload it to ovi, hope it is free or donationware!:)
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2009So in the video's where he demonstrates his software, why is the phone on a table and why isn'... moreRotate in his video is not useful but zoom is useful to me and many nokia users
I am giving out this information to other developers who may find this a good idea!!! More develpers the better!
One finger zoom plugin for web browser and photo browser:) this is gonna be the most popular plugin in ovi store!!!!!!!!
Is there an option to have keypad on the touch screen? Or do you have to flip open to dial a number thats not in the contact list?

one finger multittouch - for 5800/n97
very simple... moreSo in the video's where he demonstrates his software, why is the phone on a table and why isn't he holding it in one hand?
The way the text in his examples rotates uncontrollably doesn't look very useful, I guess you'll be waiting for him to get his handset back from the repair centre so be can start on a browser plugin and work on the picture browser etc, I wonder why he's got wires plugged into the phone.
btw I watched the videos on an iPhone, "look ma, no flash!"
